UPDATE 2: Here’s another map showing a broader view of what areas grew and shrank in population.

UPDATE: This map really breaks it down, zoom in and you’ll get to the neighborhood level.

Results of the 2010 Census were released today. Here’s a story about Bay Area growth slowing, and here’s one about surging Latino and Asian populations fueling growth statewide.

Hayward’s total population went from 140,030 to 144,186, a climb of 4,156 or 3 percent since 2000. Previous results show that 1990 to 2000 had much more growth, from 111,498 to 140,030, that’s 28,532 or 25.6 percent.

Here’s the breakdown of main demographic shifts in Hayward:

White: 40,896 to 27,178. From 29.2 percent to 18.8 percent of population.

Black: 14,846 to 16,297. From 10.6 percent to 11.3 percent of population.

American Indian: 570 to 492. .4 percent to .3 percent of population.

Asian: 26,189 to 31,090. From 18.7 percent to 21.6 percent of population.

Hawaiian/Pacific Islander: 2,511 to 4,290. From 1.8 percent to 3 percent of population.

Two or more races, not Hispanic: 6,476 to 5,757. From 4.6 percent to 4 percent of population.

Latino: 47,850 to 58,730. From 34.2 percent to 40.7 percent of population.

You can expect to see a lot of stories coming out of the Census data — it’s sort of a once-a-decade field day for data-driven journalists. But if you want to poke around for yourself, find the most accessible tables here on this page from the state finance department.

    Eric, thank you so much for the website for the actual numbers for California. It will be a very exciting time as the reapportionment happens. Outstanding empowerment. Good job.

  • Michael Moore

    Eric, this is a terrific addition. Will there also be actual numbers as well as percentages.

    MR. KURHI;

    THIS IS THE SORT OF REPORTING WHICH HAYWARD GREATLY NEEDS..

    I UNDERSTAND THE ECONOMIC LIMITATIONS ON SPACE AVAILABILITY IN THE NEWSPRINT INDUDTRY,

    THOSE LIMITATIONS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH PERSONAL TALENT WHICH YOU OBVIOUSLY POSSESS AND FOR WHICH THE READERSHIP IN THE PRINT ON PAPER BUSINESS IS INCREASINGLY UNABLE TO PRIOVIDE…. A FACTOR WHICH INCREASES WITH THE GROWING ADDICTION TO ELCTRONIC AMUSEMENTS PROVIDED BY ENTERTAINMENT AND ’TOYS FOR PARENTS’ BY MANUFACTURERS, AT LOW COST DUE TO IMPORT- EXPORT DISPARITY.

    IF YOU CAN SUSTAIN THE MUCH NEEDED TYPE OF READING THAT THIS COMMUNITY SORELY NEEDS, AS EVIDENCED ABOVE, YOU WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED!

    I PARTICULARLY APPRECIATE THE ANNOTATIONS WHICH THOSE OF US CENTERED ON SERVICE TO COMMUNITY, WHO ARE FREQUENTLY IN SEARCH OF DATA, CAN UTILIZE TO PROMOTE OR PROVIDE ANSWERS TO HUSD’S NEEDS…..

    AS SOON AS I PUT AWAY THE TAX RETURN DATA, I WILL BE ON THE CASE OF PLEASANTON VS. HAYWARD AND OAKLAND, ON THE MATTER OF LOW INCOME HOUSING NEGLECT AT PLEASANTON!

    THERE IS A POLITICAL SOLUTION TO A BETTER DISTRIBUTION OF LOW INCOME HOUSING AVAILABULIY WHICH WJHEN RESOLVED WILL SEE EVENTUAL RESOLUTION OF THE TRUANCY PROBLEM AT HUSD AND THE ’ MAJOR‘..AFFECT OF THAT PROBLEM ON THE BUDGET !

    Thanks for the above ‘column ‘ !

    There’s an interesting video called “The most important video you’ll ever see” on You tube. (Albert A Bartlett) It explains exponential growth in a different way:

    According to that, in just 70 years (my grandchildren may live so long.) California’s population will have DOUBLED.
    Check it out. That’s the way I figure it:

    Correct me if I’m wrong.

  • Michael Moore

    Sherry nothing wrong with your math. Terrific video.

    Ms. Blair;

    in 1940 the us population rose to 140 so 70 years later we have mopre than a doubling of that numer;

    Since California, especially along the cost has breathable air…. we might easily see something imn excess of a dobling; should I live another 70 years I will have 150 years behind me…. that is not possibloe but I’ll bet my underground ‘condominium’ will be ab advantageous place for a bit of peace…….

    Eric, I am not sure how aware you are of Hayward’s Promise Neighborhood effort. I know there was at least one article in the Review when the planning grant was awarded. You can read more on the City’s site:

    I am trying to get a conversation going there about the program, but I don’t think anyone knows about the blog yet. So far I am the only one making comments. I haven’t given up yet though and hope to see all of you there sometime soon.

    Eric, I gave your blog mention there. Maybe it will bring more people here too.

    Anyone who watched the school board meeting last night can see what a difference community involvement makes. Wasn’t it great! (You could almost hear the groaning of the agenda having to open upo and make spac for it!)
